Curt Schilling on 38 Studios' Demise

Former baseball star Curt Schilling was interviewed this morning on the Dennis & Callahan sports radio show on WEEI in Boston in the first such appearance since the demise of 38 Studios, the developer he founded. quotes some of the conversation where Schilling spoke of investing all of his personal assets into the company while never a penny back out. He also says his former employees "have every right to be upset" as they were "blindsided" by the studio's closure after he promised a month or two of advance warning, admitting he "bombed on that one in epic fashion." He also describes the last ditch effort to save the company that failed because Rhode Island refused to go along with the plan, and addresses accusations that his acceptance of tax credits and loan guarantees from the state were hypocritical in light of his outspoken conservative viewpoints: "I don't know how that correlates to this. I donít have any problem with government helping entrepreneurs and businesses." Thanks JJ.

I think it comes from doing IT in a school system and watching kids get constantly coddled left and right. The administration is more worried about bullying rather than actual teaching most of the time.

Not only that but they tend to put the cart before the horse often, most of the computers in this system are nearly 10 years old, years out of warranty, but instead of trying to get grants or using the money in the budget to replace them, they'd rather spend it on infocus projectors and shit like that, that said machines can barely function while using. Constantly using the mantra of "21st century technology!" um no sorry your Pentium 3 800 mhz machines are not 21st century technology.

Dude google is your friend, there's tons and tons and tons of documented welfare fraud out there.

Your guess is as good as mine as to what a solution would be, however between loopholes in the welfare system and loopholes in our current tax code the route we're currently going is not sustainable. We'll end up a Greece type of situation eventually, it's only a matter of time no matter what party is running the show.

I'm sure there are schools that have screwed up spending priorities. That's not what I'm trying to discuss right now.

I know I can find all kinds of stuff with Google. I'm asking where you, specifically, got the information that has you so riled up about this. You just refuse to provide it. From what you say, it's like you've read some stories about welfare fraud, and seen kids get "coddled", whatever that means. I'm sure there are lots of cases of welfare fraud, but you haven't given me any reason to believe that they make up anything like a significant percentage of welfare recipients or spending. Yet you seem to think there is some sort of epidemic that is a threat to our economy.

I'm simply asking what you're basing your beliefs on this subject on. I don't think that's too much to ask, do you?
